The Invasion is Nominated for the Lodestar Award

A pretty amazing thing happened today. My novel, The Invasion, sequel to The Call, has been nominated for the 2019 Lodestar Award for Best Young Adult Book.

This is not officially a Hugo Award, but it is voted on by the same electorate and presented at the same ceremony, so for me, these are my Oscars, and this is about as exciting as it gets.

I am hugely indebted to whatever wonderful people nominated my book. Thank you! And thanks too, to the Hugo Committee for all the work they do in the background to make this happen.

This is an incredible list of nominees that any writer would be proud to be part of. See below! Read them all for extra pleasure and joy!

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyami

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Dread Nation by Justina Ireland

The Invasion by Peadar O’Guilin

Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman

Good luck to everybody involved!
